Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Tinley Park

  • The Tinley Park region has about 261 doctors per capita compared to the national norm of 210, promoting access to prompt medical care, and local health care costs fall about 6% below national averages. There are no hospitals within the city limits, but Advocate South Suburban Hospital and Palos Community Hospital are located about 5 miles away. Additionally, many assisted living facilities have on-call physicians who provide routine check-ups and urgent care.
  • In Illinois, seniors generally don’t pay state income taxes on their retirement income. This may promote seniors’ financial security throughout retirement and help them afford assisted living expenses in Tinley Park.
  • Tinley Park runs a senior bus service, helping older adults attend medical appointments and errands and supplementing the transportation services assisted living facilities provide. This service is available on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and reservations can be made up to 7 days in advance.
  • On a 100-point cost of living index based on living costs in the nation as a whole, Tinley Park scores 103.5. This is 10 points higher than the state norm and 3.5% higher than the national average, which may be a consideration for those with limited financial resources. Fortunately, assisted living facilities typically provide all-inclusive pricing, which can help some seniors afford to live in this community.
  • Crime is relatively uncommon in Tinley Park, which may provide peace of mind to seniors. On a 100-point index, the city scores 10.8 for violent crime and 22.7 for property-related offenses. By comparison, the respective national scores are 22.7 and 35.4, indicating that crime occurs less often in this city than in a typical U.S. city.
  • Tinley Park is one of the cooler places to live in Illinois, which may appeal to seniors sensitive to heat. July highs are around 84 degrees Fahrenheit and winter lows are in the teens, and the city gets 40 inches of rain and 30 inches of snow annually.
